Grass Pitch Improvement Programme
Our commitment to improving football pitches
The Premier League, The FA and Government’s Football Foundation's ‘Power Up Your Grass Pitch’ campaign will revolutionise the state of grass football pitches in England.
The biggest sports charity in the country is on a mission to improve over 7,000 grass pitches by 2024 and 20,000 by 2030, to ensure the 12 million grassroots football players across the country have great places to play.
Around 87% of affiliated football is played on grass pitches, but with over 150,000 matches cancelled due to poor pitch quality during the last season alone, play is often brought to a halt.
Improving facilities means that more people across England will get to enjoy playing the nation’s favourite sport, transforming people’s physical and mental wellbeing, as well as supporting local communities and economies.
